I am so totally stoked to be a part of Gretchen McNeil’s GET EVEN Blog Tour hosted by Me, My Shelf and I. GET EVEN is my new favorite book by the author and I’m already DYING to get my hands on the next book in this series.
I was nervous for about half a second that the multiple character POVs would be confusing or would make me not able to connect with this story. But the author did an absolutely amazing job of transitioning between them seamlessly and make me want to get to know, and read more about, each one of them.
This was a book that I could not put down. It was engaging, it made me question everyone, it made me want to know who was responsible for what happened and what the big mystery was and how it tied in to what was happening to Bree, Kitty, Olivia, and Margot.
I did not have a clue – try as I might – about the who and the why of it all. And that’s pretty rare. It made me want to read that much faster. I think I devoured all almost-400 pages of the ARC in half the time it might otherwise have taken me.
GET EVEN is a total must read book. It gets a five-star rating from me. And I will be giving it a gushing review next week because I seriously loved it.
For now, though, if you want to know a little bit more about GET EVEN, the description is below, and there are – and will be – a few (hopefully) spoiler-free reviews on this tour, which you can follow by clicking the banner above, or the links at the bottom of this post, which I’ll be updating with direct links to all the stops.
And if you want a chance to win one of three seriously amazing prizes, just follow the instructions in the Rafflecopter form a bit further down.
And now, without any more rambling and such, I am thrilled to be able to share a super fun guest post by the author in which she reveals 10 Random Things about herself, including just how much she looooooved Titanic – the film not the sunken ship.
About Get Even
Series: Don’t Get Mad #1
Release Date: September 16th 2014
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Formats: Paperback, audio, eBook
The Breakfast Club meets Pretty Little Liars in Gretchen McNeil’s witty and suspenseful novel about four disparate girls who join forces to take revenge on high school bullies and create dangerous enemies for themselves in the process.
Bree, Olivia, Kitty, and Margot have nothing in common—at least that’s what they’d like the students and administrators of their elite private school to think. The girls have different goals, different friends, and different lives, but they share one very big secret: They’re all members of Don’t Get Mad, a secret society that anonymously takes revenge on the school’s bullies, mean girls, and tyrannical teachers.
When their latest target ends up dead with a blood-soaked “DGM” card in his hands, the girls realize that they’re not as anonymous as they thought—and that someone now wants revenge on them. Soon the clues are piling up, the police are closing in . . . and everyone has something to lose.
